Fabrics have become totally incredible. This one is no exception. It's like a whisper, soft, light and a bit slippery. I am trying to find the perfect jacket for a motorcycle trip in warm weather. So I need light, it weights an amazing 4.3 ounces. I need wind protection and I read that it does. Waterproof would make it perfect, but no one seems to have been caught in the rain yet. Some warmth would be good, but I think you need to be producing your own for this jacket to keep you warm. Hmmm. It certainly fits a niche. Expensive, not terribly attractive, thin and see through. Maybe I would need to use it as a potential layer. Definitely not for running in the woods or rough terrain. Looks like it would easily rip if snagged.

Super thin,but still kept in your heat enough. I wore it for a 1/2 marathon in rainy, windy and cold conditions (45F). It kept me warm and I took it off after about 4 miles into it (I run 8:30permile pace and get hot easily.) Looks very stylish. Love the hood--really stayed on (in this newer version, I think that they fixed the problem of hood not staying on in older version.) Elastic wrists and tightening string at waist was good. Only one pocket and that was in back...I would have wanted one in front for more easy access as I ran. Big vent in the back that helped me vent air when I opened up jacket a bit.

I have running vest by Brooks that I love so when I needed a jacket Brooks was my first choice. The jacket is lightweight which makes it great for layering without becoming overheated while running. It keeps me dry when running in in light rain and snow. So far I find it hard to keep the hood on my head because it has no drawstrings. My other complaint is that the white jacket is so thin that whatever color top I am wearing underneath shows through. I think this price is a little steep for such a thin jacket.
